Zero edge control

I cannot tell you how excited I was to get my hands on this deck. I have this deck as well as 5 others from various companies (including FULL rocker boards), and have been riding for 7 years. I 'thought' that the frostbite edges WITH a little camber underfoot would really be a great combo for gripping the snow in all conditions. Boy was I wrong. This thing is extremely washy and does not hold and edge no matter how hard you try. I live in Park City where the snow is usually great with plenty of pow, but when the pow turns into hardpack mixed with some icy conditions, this board is worthless. I feel out of control.
I will say this thing is pretty floaty in pow though. I've had a couple great days with over 2 feet and this thing just wants to jump up to the top.

Overall- not a good all around deck, but fun in pow.
Not recommended.

Couldn't agree more! Took the deck out for it's maiden voyage to Revelstoke and was completely diassapointed. By the end of the day I wanted to leave it in the parking lot. Absolutely NO edge control. Tried various binding variations and stances and still could not lay an effective edge, especially in steep/fast terrain. Powder the board perfomred well, and flatland was fun, but majority of the time I was really fighting the board. I am gonna give it some getting used to time, but if no improvements I am gonna have to let it go.

LetShred's review is dead on. I am a long standing Burton fan and was very excited to get this deck. What a disappointment. Washed out with really poor edge control on typical east coast icy surfaces. I could probably get used to it, but why waste a half season adapting to this nightmare when lib-tech makes awesome magnatraction boards that have claw-like grip out of the box? This board is a complete waste of time. Still like Burton for the camber boards but STAY AWAY from this one if you have any kind of remotely icy situation.
